A trip to the grocery store for Denis so he can cook a Friendsgiving meal

Posted Nov 9, 2023
Denis would like to host a Thanksgiving meal with all of his friends from college who are unable to spend the holidays with their families. This will be Denis's first time ever hosting a Friendsgiving dinner and he would like to make sure that his friends have a good time. Since Denis is a Culinary Arts student, he has come up with a mini menu to make sure that he cooks to the best of his abilities. It would mean a lot for Denis to receive some support so that he can cook a meal for his closest friends.

Denis is 23 years old and lives in CA

When Denis was 16, he was forced to enter the foster care system and separate from his mother. This was one of the hardest things that ever happened to him due to the change in family dynamics and living conditions. Denis has now aged out of foster care, and he is one of the first in his family to go to college. His hobbies are playing soccer and video games. He is interested in food and loves all types of food, and that inspired him to major in Culinary Arts.

"I joined the Navy when I was young, that was the beginning of me redefining Thanksgiving, as my shipmates & I couldn't fly home. To this day, I still invite all of my friends to join in my Thanksgiving. Here is to making a life long tradition for you. Enjoy the day & all the cooking. I am sure your friends will love everything. Happy Thanksgiving, Renee"
